The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel demolished the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok at the Big Dome, 105-83.
Forget Russell Westbrook, the PBA has a similar player who can deliver triple-double performances every night and that’s none other than the BGSM import.
Justine Brownlee is once again in his top form and produced 27 points, nine rebounds and ten assists for the Barangay.
Scottie Thompson showcased his long-range abilities as he converted four triples. Thompson finished the game with 14 points.
Both the Gin Kings and the Hotshots played back-and-forth kind of match particulary in the first half.
However, in the third quarter, Ginebra caught fire from outside led by “the Negros Sniper”. Jeff Chan swished all of his nine points in that period and all of the sudden, Gin Kings was ahead by double-digit points.
In the next and final quarter, Ginebra’s scoring onslaught continues and didn’t give Magnolia a chance to mount a comeback.
Rome Dela Rosa led Magnolia in scoring with his 18 points where the majority of his contribution came from beyond the three-point arc.
Romeo Travis who is playing through pain scored 17 points and grabbed 17 rebounds.
